What is the self-employment contract?


The Self- Employment Contract is the agreement that regulates a continuous or occasional work performance by a self-employed worker.

The collaborator provides the service by freely organizing their work. You can independently choose the times and methods with which to perform the service with the sole obligation to provide the service agreed with the customer. For this reason, the self-employed worker is different from an employee who is instead required to respect the methods, schedules and times established by his employer.

Signing a written agreement allows the parties to regulate all aspects of the business and avoid possible misunderstandings. In particular, it is possible to describe in detail the service to be provided, to define the remuneration of the worker and to foresee a duration. Furthermore, it is possible to insert additional clauses such as the obligation of confidentiality or a non-competition agreement.

When using the self-employment contract

This document can be used to regulate both ongoing and occasional performance. For example, it is suitable for hiring a professional to carry out a consultancy for a company or for entrusting the maintenance of a website to a person who occasionally dedicates himself to this activity. In the latter case, we are talking about an occasional self-employment contract.

When the service is offered on an occasional basis, the self-employed person does not need a VAT number. In fact, it can issue a simple receipt. If, on the other hand, the activity is carried out continuously, it is necessary to have a p. VAT. With our service, you can open a VAT number quickly and easily with the support of an experienced professional who will take care of all the necessary formalities.

The contract for self-employed collaborators can be used to regulate both intellectual and manual work. For example, you can regulate the activity of consulting in the marketing sector or gardening or cleaning of an office.

This agreement is not used instead when the worker is required to comply with the customer’s instructions on how to perform the service (egg time and place of work). In this case, we speak of subordinate work and it is required that the worker is permanently inserted in the company organization using an employee contract.
